Grey's Anatomy, others win GLAAD awards in
L.A. ceremony

Grey's Anatomy, the ABC hit show whose lead actor was criticized for using an antigay slur, received an award for outstanding individual episode Saturday by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. The show won for its episode "Where the Boys Are."

The show got unwanted attention last year when actor Isaiah Washington used a slur to talk about a cast mate in an on-set dustup. He later apologized and sought counseling.

Little Miss Sunshine was named outstanding film in the wide-release category, while Ugly Betty won for outstanding television comedy series and Brothers & Sisters took home the outstanding drama series award.

La Opinion newspaper was awarded outstanding Spanish-language newspaper for overall coverage.

The Vanguard Award went to actress Jennifer Aniston for her efforts to increase visibility and understanding of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people.

Tennis great Martina Navratilova was given the Stephen F. Kolzak Award, named for the late casting director who fought homophobia in the entertainment industry.

The 18th annual GLAAD Media Awards, with honors in 42 categories, are presented at ceremonies in Los Angeles, New York City, Miami, and San Francisco in March, April, and May.

The awards "recognize and honor mainstream media for their fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender...community and the issues that affect their lives." (AP)
